This is the first "blog" of any kind I've ever had, so it's probably not the greatest...

Just a little snippet about me:

I'd like to consider myself relatively tech-savvy; obviously I use Linux (Arch to be precise; K.I.S.S. FTW), and I enjoy learning new things about computers in general (both software and hardware-related).

This blog is mostly just for whenever I feel like telling the world about my experiences with computers/Linux (or just life in general), or just posting for the hell of it.

Fatalistic poetry…?

I realize that some people here are a bit tired of me being the nihilistic fatalist all the time when talking about matters of religion and/or philosophy, but this is just a little klutzy piece of "poetry" I threw together that might shed some light on the whole "free will" issue (for me, at least ):

How do these men stand to get up in the mornings?

I don't understand how one can essentially devote their life to proving that effectively, no one has any real "control" over their lives. It's sickening, to say the least.

(Yes, I know that's a horrible exaggeration, but try to understand where...

I've decided that I'm going to either a) take a break from LQ for a while (and I really mean it this time), or b) try to actually contribute more useful content to the forums (I've been spending way too much time in /General lately ).

I figure that if I'm going to be posting anything about religion/faith, existentialism, philosophy, or whatever other topics that I find "sensitive", it'll be either here (in this blog) or just not at all.

So I'd like to just...

Nothing more than a helpless pawn...

When one feels like a helpless pawn of the universe, what does one do?

Do they simply live life in ignorance of their pain, only letting it silently build up in the background?
